We did not enjoy trying to sleep next to a party in full swing until past 1am in the morning, with no hotel staff to be found anywhere. The wooden deck area that was built is very nice, but what they didn't tell us beforehand when booking was that the venue had been booked for a party for non-guests. What... More

Loved every moment of my stay! Merina and Inus was so friendly, they made our stay amazing. Always smiling. The building itself needs an upgrade, but definitely enjoyed every moment. The food was AMAZING! Will definitely return to this lovely establishment.

During our short stay, we had a loud, drunken party blasting away until 1am in the morning, with no hotel staff to control the louts smashing glasses outside our room. Ask about parties before you book!

The carpet in Room 30 in which we stayed was filthy. I happened to walk without shoes on my first night and my feet were black underneath. I do not know when that carpet was last cleaned. Otherwise the bedding and towels I could not fault.

I've been a guest at F K since February 2004 & have always enjoyed staying there.The service has been good.The rooms clean & comfortable. I just love being in nature & this is the ideal location for that. What a great place to relax! Will keep coming back.

The Hotel rooms are in need of a revamp, but our stay was pleasant and we got a good night’s rest. The Breakfasts were awesome. The Staff and personal were friendly. Will be back again next year for the 2 Passes Rally.

The location is fantastic with a great pool, tennis court and views. The room was dirty with old decor and a broken chair, service was poor with staff giving blank stares, not able to give accurate information and generally unhelpful, our deposit got lost even though it was accurately referenced and paid to the account specified, I was bitten by...

We stayed for two nights in this hotel (if we can call it like that) and the service was the worse I have ever experienced. Staff could have been friendlier and proactive, the waitress (not their fault) totally untrained. I would never suggest it to my worse enemy.

Nice setting on the river but hotel badly needs some TLC Restaurant badly needs a revamp - décor very dated & shabby. No wine list - staff looked at us like we were wanting something unusual when we asked for sauvignon blanc wine. Staff weren't very friendly for most of the weekend - no one to greet you as you...
